Fender Strikes a Chord with the Vintera II Line: Where Vintage Meets Vogue
Fender Guitars amplifies its offerings for 2023 with the introduction of the Vintera II – a great addition to their ever-evolving arsenal. With these guitars, vintage vibes meet modern mastery, and Fender knows how to blend the nostalgia of yesterday with the cutting-edge innovation of today.
If you're the kind of player who has a favorite era of Fender guitars, the Vintera II Line revives the classics from the '50s, '60s, and '70s. Whether you're into the smooth, creamy tones of a '50s Strat or craving the crunchy, biting sounds of a '70s Tele Deluxe, there's likely a Vintera II model that suits you.
Form Meets Function: While Fender is known for their no-nonsense, vintage-inspired aesthetics, the Vintera II Line doesn't disappoint. With vintage-style hardware, timeless finishes, and time-tested craftsmanship, these guitars look and feel just as good as they play. Color options are the cherry on top, adding a wide palette to choose from so you can shine visually while you shine sonically. From 2 to 3 color sunburst, classic black, blonde, or a number of more modern choices, Vintera II covers a lot of ground.
Elegance in Simplicity: The Vintera II line gives you everything you need, and nothing you don't. In the words of Fender, “experience the iconic looks, inspiring feel, and incomparable tone that only a Fender can deliver”.
From the Vintera II Nocaster or Stratocaster, to Precision, Jazz and Mustang Basses, this whole line showcases Fender's versatile, era-specific specs. We're also here to extend a special warm welcome to the cult -classic Bass VI making its Vintera debut. While the Vintera II Telecaster and Stratocaster keep it classic with their single-coil charm, pivot in either direction to find a Telecaster Deluxe or Jazzmaster with humbucking pickups to beef things up a bit. Each model has its own unique voicing and plenty of options to choose from.
The Vintera II line is thought out to the point that few stones are left unturned when it comes to the array of specs to choose from, so it’s likely Fender has you covered no matter what your preference is.
